The list of characters from the wide-spanning Star Wars lore set to appear in the second season of The Mandalorian is expanding as it’s been announced Temuera Morrison is set to appear in the highly-anticipated next chapter of the titular bounty hunter’s story, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Morrison previously appeared in the franchise in the second prequel installment Attack of the Clones as Jango Fett, the genetic template for the clones of the Galactic Empire’s Clone Army. Jango was killed by Samuel L. Jackson’s Mace Windu during the Battle of Geonosis, with his son clone finding his helmet and hinting at his future as the original trilogy’s Boba Fett. Sources report that Morrison is set to portray Boba in the upcoming second season of the hit Disney+ series.

Alongside Boba Fett, the second season will reportedly feature the live-action debut of Jedi Padawan turned Rebel Alliance spymaster Ahsoka Tano with Rosario Dawson (Zombieland: Double Tap) in talks to portray the fan-favorite character, though the star recently confirmed that the deal is not yet sealed on the part.

We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

Pedro Pascal (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) stars as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy and is joined by Gina Carano (Deadpool) who plays Cara Dune, a former Rebel Shock Trooper, having trouble re-integrating herself into society.; and Carl Weathers as Greef, a man who heads a guild of bounty hunters that hires The Mandalorian for a specific job.

The series also stars Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Carl Weathers (Predator), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man) and Nick Nolte (Affliction).

Cereal Wars – Collectible Star Wars Pens In Specially Marked Boxes of General Mills Cereal

Cereal-Wars-1

Remember when you were a kid and cereal boxes had prizes!

You could care less about the sugary breakfast food advertised on the box; it was all about the PRIZE. After promising to do your chores and eat all of your veggies you would beg your mom for Cap’n Crunch, Freakies or Quisp. After masterfully wearing her down, she would succumb and hopefully toss the desired container into the shopping cart. Once home, you would madly tear open the top of the box, blindly force your hand down through the layers of cereal to grasp Excalibur – a baking soda powered submarine, balloon powered car or the Flintstones pencil holder.

Now you can relive that nostalgic moment…

Between now and the end of the year, General Mills is bringing back Star Wars pens in specially marked boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Reese’s Puffs, Golden Grahams, Cocoa Puffs, Trix and Lucky Charms.

Star Wars fans and cereal lovers can visit the “Cereal Wars” Tumblr for Vine and Instagram videos and share memorable movie scenes, quotes and battles.

Fans should look for Darth Vader, Mace Windu, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Storm Trooper, Boba Fett, Chewbacca and Anakin Skywalker in specially marked boxes.

General Foods is partnering with popular Star Wars fan sites like Rebelscum and Yak Face to host Star Wars collectible item giveaways including an exclusive studio scale Star Corps trooper helmet replica and limited edition 24” Star Wars Super Shogun Storm Troopers.
